The flame comes on for 9 sec, then goes out for 1 min. and 15 sec. it takes about 2 hrs. to dry a tub of clothes. Is the thermo switch bad?


This is usually the dryer coils have failed. They tend to fail as they heat up. They are inexpensive and easy to replace. Here is a video on replacing the dryer coils.

Hi, If you have a gas dryer2_bing.gif.
The most common problem with a gas and no heat is the ignitor going bad...

My dryer heats up but clothes take 2 hrs to dry can you help me? I have a whirlpool supreme


Is your dryer electric or gas? Is it getting hot? Please check to see if your lint vent and hose is not clogged with lint. It has to be blowing good. Any restriction will cause the problem you are having. Lint will build up in the hose/venting and will become a fire hazard also. If your vent hose is blowing good then your drum isn't turning. A new drum belt is then required. If your drum is turning and it isn't getting hot you need a new element or a igniter switch depending if it's gas or electric. Hope I helped.

Whirlpool Dryer LGQ9508PW0 flame comes on and shuts off after 30 seconds.


this might actually be normal, whats the complaint??? to long to dry clothes maybe 2-3 cycles??? would be a common complaint. in which id check to make sure vent is not clogged anywhere, especially where exiting the home if he venting is ok id replace the coils atop the gas valve, possible and common for that matter that after running for 20-30 min they do not reopen and dont allow flem to reignite... part number 279834 retails for about $20 easy enough repair.... reason for flame to go on and turn off after only 30 secs is that in an empty dryer 30 secs of heat may be enough to satisfy the thermostat, that's alot of heat for an empty dryer, it would remain on for longer with a load of wet clothes absorbing the heat

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance.
